Reporting the Blitz

Reporting the Blitz takes a fresh look at the home front during World War Two, using local newspaper archives from around the country to throw light on some relatively neglected aspects of those years. It explores the unspoken attitudes and values of those wartime communities, the ways in which local firms sought sometimes unexpected business opportunities from the hostilities, how officialdom and the local media sought to jolly the community along, and to keep bad news from them. It looks at the bumblings of wartime bureaucracy and the extraordinary extent to which the wartime government assumed the trappings of a dictatorship. It sees how people attempted to have fun and looks at the communities' attempts to conjure normality out of the most abnormal of situations. it explores how people managed to travel in the extraordinary circumstances of war (or how they managed, if they could not). It tells individual tales of heroism, greed, stupidity, eccentricity and tragedy, many of them not previously drawn upon for accounts of the period.
